If you haven’t, where have you been hiding? One look and I KNEW I needed to make these with Rhodes. SO SIMPLE! Caramel apples have been in full swing and what better time to bring you this yummy recipe?! There are many variations, but I chose to adapt this one from Mom On Timeout. Go check out her pictures too, they look wonderful as well. So lets get to the reason you are here shall we?Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Rhodes // Caramel Apples.. but in the form of cinnamon rolls?! You are in for a treat! | Tried and TastyHere’s what you are going to need: 1 loaf Rhodes bread, 1/2 c. softened butter (oopsie, not pictured!), 3/4 c. brown sugar, 1/2 c. sugar, 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon, 1 1/2 c. finely chopped apple (Granny Smith preferred), 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (hmm… looks like it’s also missing in the lineup.

You are in for a treat! | Tried and TastyI’ve made my fair share of Rhodes sweet rolls (Toffee Sweet Rolls, Maple Pecan Rolls, Chocolate Pecan Rolls, Pumpkin Pecan Cream Cheese Rolls, Simple Cinnamon Rolls, and Glazed Lemon Rolls to give you an idea). In just about each one I will tell you, this part is my LEAST favorite. But, I’ve found to make it easier, about half-way through you can let your dough rest for 10 or so minutes and it will be easier to roll out. Roll out to approximately 12 x 16 inches. Spread on softened butter.Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Rhodes // Caramel Apples.. but in the form of cinnamon rolls?! You are in for a treat! | Tried and TastyHere’s where the fun begins.

You are in for a treat! | Tried and Tasty I decided that a cinnamon roll isn’t a cinnamon roll without cream cheese frosting in my book. So I whipped up a quick frosting. About a half a block of cream cheese, a cup or two of powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla, and a couple of tablespoons of milk. Top it off with a drizzle of caramel and you’ve got your self a pretty amazing breakfast/dessert/anytime of the day pick-me-up! Enjoy!
